Virginia Woolf: Bloomsbury & Beyond
Virginia Woolf was clearly one of the great writers of the past century. Curtis places the author of A Room of One's Own firmly on a par with writers such as Simone de Beauvoir and therefore within the study remit of courses on feminist literature.

A short and informative read about Virginia Woolf and her relations with other Bloomsbury members. A great thing about the book is the inclusion of full-page length photographs of Bloomsbury members and the London of Woolf’s time. However, as a literary biography of Woolf, the book doesn’t succeed well. There is no original insight either into Woolf’s personality or into her work and the author fails to answer his own question i.e. what makes Woolf so great.
